Alumni Success

LEAP graduates have taken a number of different paths as a result of the program's highly individualized curriculum. 

Many LEAP alumni have been accepted into prestigious graduate school programs and are enjoying new careers in a variety of different fields such as: Art History, College Administration, Law, Psychology, Performing Arts, Physical Therapy, Medicine, International Relations, Education, and Public Relations. Some stay in the dance world as artistic directors or teachers. Other graduates are still dancing professionally, but with a secure sense of the future and the knowledge that with the degree they will experience a much easier career transition upon retirement from the stage.
